We are building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.


About Us

California Girl Scout Backpackers train girl and adult Girl Scouts to go into the wilderness with nothing but the gear on their back. We share resources, knowledge, fellowship, and support and assist Girl Scout groups in building and improving their programs.
